ESRI Goes on the Road with ArcGIS 9.2

Seminars Will Show Latest Software Capabilities

Redlands, California—ESRI is demonstrating enhancements in the company’s new ArcGIS 9.2 software this fall during a series of worldwide seminars developed for geographic information system (GIS) professionals. The complimentary day-long presentations are being held in 46 states, ending in December.  Seminars also are planned for customers outside the United States, starting in Sweden, Finland, and the United Kingdom, and expanding to other countries.

     ArcGIS 9.2 is a complete system for authoring, serving, and using geographic knowledge.   “This release, for us, is one of the biggest, most productive releases that we have ever done,” said Jack Dangermond, ESRI president. “Our goal is to make the products much easier to use, more reliable, of higher quality, and with many new capabilities,” he said.

    Dangermond encouraged customers to attend one of the seminars. “The demonstrations will show user-requested enhancements along with continued innovations that will help our users be more productive with our software,” he said. “We worked closely with our users to understand their priorities, and we appreciate the support and feedback we have received.”
          The seminars will illustrate

·       Improvements in software quality, documentation, productivity, and performance as well as simpler use and system administration

·       Support for evolving computer trends and standards such as integrating new platforms, Web services, service-oriented architecture (SOA) standards, and new geospatial data types

·       New and enhanced capabilities including innovations in areas such as data management, spatial analysis and modeling, intelligent cartography, and mobile GIS

 This seminar is designed for current users of ESRI software, including GIS analysts and coordinators.  IT/IS managers and technology evangelists also will benefit from attending.
